Believe It Or Not! Antecedents and Consequences of False News in Marketing

Using a mixed-methods approach, this research investigates the motivations and consequences of sharing marketing related false news. Qualitative analysis reveals that people share messages to help others and help the (fake) victim to take revenge on brands. Empirical analysis shows that strong brands suffer more than weak brands.
